linking across different /arch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was curious if there was a way /switch by which linking across different /arch values can be disabled or have a warning be printed. Since this can cause crashes when a newer instruction is run on an older CPU and is detected late in the game for large projects using different libraries.

    We have a project which has /arch:IA32 but it links with a library with the default SSE2 and this crashes in field.

    Thanks,


    SS

  • Hi sdeep,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Since our forum is mainly discussing with VS IDE. As you said, you want to know if there was a way /switch by which linking across different /arch values can be disabled or have a warning be printed. This question has no more knowledge here that could help you. So I will help you to move it to Where is the Forum for…? Forum, there is someone who can help you to redirect it to an appropriate forum for a more professional supporting!

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Best Regards

    May

  • Hello,

    according to this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/build/reference/arch-x86?view=vs-2017

    it seems to be a C++ Project.

    Then you could ask here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=vcgeneral

    Or ask in the appropiate forum for your programming language.

    Regards, Guido
